Green Tea.


 


Hi there, hope you had a lovely weekend. I wish you a blessed week ahead. Today, its all about green tea. As a weight watcher,and an adult in general,  green tea should be your best friend. It has so many health benefits that i might not be able to highlight all of them here today, but let me try.


  • Green tea, has important antioxidant, and compounds that help in maintaining a good health and boost our immune system.
  • It lowers blood pressure.
  • It prevents tooth decay.
  • It sharpens your mental alertness.
  • It has the potential to fight cancer and heart disease.
  • It increases metabolism. it intensifies the rate at which the body turns food to calories.
  • It helps to regulate the glucose level in the body, slowing the rise of blood sugar after eating. this can prevent high insulin spikes and fat storage. great for diabetics.
  • It has been proven to help improve the skins beauty and reduce signs of aging. 
 

Please note that Green tea contains tanins which can decrease the absorption of iron and folic acid, so its not ideal for pregnant women or women trying to conceive. Don't forget to check with your doctor before you start any weight loss programme.

Please don't let the taste of green tea deter you.  I mix my green tea with lemon all the time, try yours with ginger and honey, tastes great! 

God bless you.
